Not even a billionaire with the most coveted oil money can compel Rihanna to stay in a broken relationship.
This is the rumour, first reported by US Weekly, that has been circulating on social media.
Rihanna has not come out to confirm nor deny reports that she and filthy rich Saudi businessman, Hassan Jameel, are no longer an item.
However, the cited publication claims to have received reliable information from a source within the star’s inner circle.
Rihanna spotted with A$AP Rocky at YAMS Day
Rihanna was spotted with A$AP Rocky at the YAMS Day celebrations, in New York, a couple of days ago.
While the two appear to have recently rekindled their friendship, sightings of them out on dates — fresh off a reported breakup with Jameel — have sparked rumours that Rihanna may have the hots for Rocky.
Of course, all of this is speculation at this point. For all we know, Riri might only be hanging around Rocky because he is a fun guy and maybe that energy is what she needs in these trying times.
If true, why did she and Jameel break up?
It is not clear why she and Jameel called it quits. The news is somewhat surprising considering how sure everyone was that she would, at the very least, conceive in the relationship.
In a 2019 Interview magazine insert, Rihanna confided in her Oceans 8 costar, Sarah Paulson, about how serious things were between her and Jameel, at the time.
“I got into a new relationship, and it matters to me. It was like, ‘I need to make time for this.’ Just like I nurture my businesses, I need to nurture this as well. I’ll shut things down for two days, three days at a time.
“On my calendar we now have the infamous ‘P,’ which means personal days. This is a new thing,” she said.
Some have empathised with the emotional suffrage she may be experiencing (none of this was observed when she was around Rocky). Others have argued that the breakup finally gives Rihanna incentive to release her much-anticipated album, R9.
